CLECAT Position Paper on Proposal for EU Single Window Environment for Customs

CLECAT welcomes the European Commission’s proposal for EU Single Window Environment for Customs as a significant step forward for the EU Customs Union and Internal Market.

CLECAT is convinced that, if effectively implemented, an EU-wide Single Window solution has the potential to address the existing fragmented model of regulatory compliance and lack of coordination between border authorities. An EU Single Window environment should allow for the streamlining of exchanges of information and customs controls and ultimately facilitate trade with simplified processes, time saving, faster clearance and reduced administrative burden. CLECAT further outlines several important observations and recommendations for proper and meaningful implementation.
